The new website catering to those eligible for government cash handouts can serve 3.48 million transactions in one minute and would not overload, the vice minister to the prime minister, Charnkrit Dejwituk, said.

 

"Rao Mai Ting Kan" is a registration channel for people affected by the Covid-19 situation who will receive Bt5,000 from the government for three months. The registration will open from Saturday (March 28), 6pm.

 

“The website can serve 58,000 transactions at the same time, and 3.48 million per minute,” he said.

 

“Krungthai Bank will use artificial intelligence to screen the eligible persons, in line with the government’s criteria, from total registration, preventing permission to criminals,” he added.

 

The vice minister, moreover, said that the Finance Ministry would seek a bigger budget from the government if the number of eligible people is higher than the estimate.

Well doesn't that sound like a plan!

Perhaps since a bank is doing it there may be some hope, but I find the numbers and speed a little hard to believe, where have they trialed this and for how long?

So every eligible Thai citizen should be sorted in the next 5 to 10 minutes
